BMW Confirms Return of 8 Series Coupe

BMW Confirms Return of 8 Series Coupe

The convertible and fastback sedan 6-Series models are still on sale but will likely be phased out soon.

On the outside, the 2 Series gets new bi-LED headlights as standard, while available as an option are bi-LED adaptive headlights.

Five new wheel designs in both 17-inch and 18-inch sizes complement the two new exterior colors, one of which is called Sunset Orange and the other one Seaside Blue. All of these features are in line with what we've seen on camouflaged prototypes that our spy photographers caught past year.

Navy Seal killed in Somalia was based in Virginia Beach
AMISOM forces have been in Somalia since 2007, gradually expanding to secure the capital and pushing into major towns. An al-Shabaab leader was killed in the lower Shabelle region in an operation conducted by the Somali National Army.


Its eight-speed automatic gearbox helped make light of dawdling traffic on the Cotswolds' test route, while the newly sharpened suspension hardly complained when confronted with a typically unmaintained British main road.

The updated 2 Series coupé and convertible will be available to order in South Africa from late July or early August, with first deliveries planned for September 2017.

The BMW M240i/M240i xDrive are the M Performance representatives of the Coupe and Convertible line-ups.

He added, "Together we are seeing that great achievements are possible when we put the American people first". But others blamed any shortcomings on obstruction from Democrats.


Rumors and speculation had been swirling that a large coupe being tested by BMW, would come to form as either a 6 or 8 Series.

As is usual for BMW, it proclaims the 2 Series is a "driver's car", and as such features rear-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission. The kidney grille has been subtly enlarged, along with the air intakes for a sportier look - with BMW saying it has touched the LED taillights as well. The interior trim is Dark Aluminium Carbon with Pearl Gloss Chrome accent strips.

The dashboard has had a makeover too, with a new instrument bezel and a different air vent design setting it apart from the current model. LED fog lamps are standard on the 2018 BMW 230i. The equipment range for the models Sport Line, Luxury Line and M Sport now also includes a dashboard with the distinctive contrasting seam.
